Set near the city of Allahabad in North India in a little village during the early 1970s and 1980s. This little village is Asha's world. Whatever she knows and wants is right here in her humble existence, her grandparents and her soul mate Lalli. Then Seth comes along, the handsome son of an Indian Commissioner and Sheila, the beautiful daughter of a British missionary. Their common love for poetry draws them closer--awakening Asha to a dream to be more like him and strive for a better future. But then Seth returns to Medical School, leaving a changed Asha caught between two different worlds. The unspoken relationship with her grandfather, a man of few words, stands as a constant reminder of life's failures and broken dreams. Full of a zest for life and a passion to survive, Asha challenges the system as she fights to keep her dream of both love and life alive.
